4:06 am
defense minister question the basis for the allegations against moscow and the ukrainian opposition we haven't received any answer from ukraine or from the police actually coming to an on poor civil causes for the disaster was more still their comments based on material from social media. the defense ministry says that another aircraft was detected in the same flight path as the malaysian airliner russia's data suggesting the second plane was a ukrainian military fighter jet but kiev claims all of its planes were on the ground at the time and satellite images showed a ukrainian surface to air missile launcher system in the area just days before the crash however the complex was then apparently moved to an unknown known location on the very same day as the tragedy. in the meantime the u.s. has been rolling out a barrage of accusations against russia washington claims moscow was supplying heavy weapons to the ukrainian opposition and is even firing across the border and
4:07 am
the media has been pressing the u.s. government to reveal a solid basis for the allegations but washington or simply cited classified intelligence social media sources and claims made by the ukrainian government on all journalists are buying about i would like to know what you're basing this new evidence that the russians intend to send any heavier equipment based sentimentality thing from a show i can't get into sources and methods behind it but i was able to be able to tell you that is there a you tube video or something that you could point us to that in your engines and i'm just wondering if you what what what it is and you said i wasn't going to give you the underlined or story we did use like you know when you're working its magic you're sure i don't give you more information just say no i think you know so i start actually ask you a question here i can't give you the source and i think we should refrain not give you the information theory that it would be best for all concerned here in the other question here you know you make an allegation like that you're able to back
4:08 am
it up with something more than just because i say so the mainstream media has been feeding off of the state department's accusations r.t. correspondent guy nature can now having a close look at some of the recent reports. b.b.c. russian deleted an online report by their correspondent from eastern ukraine it was recorded by all good if shaina who went to the site where ukrainian intelligence says rebels fired a missile at the malaysian airlines plane which she took the photo showing a rising plume of smoke which the ukrainians intelligence service provided as evidence of where the missile was launched the reporter identified at least two other potential sources for such a plume in the area including a coal mine nearby she also asked locals what they saw in the sky that day. there were two explosions in the sky with there how the plane broke apart with pieces falling everywhere and they were seen as a military jet fly neah everyone saw it yes everyone saw it flying only to unload
4:09 am
the presenter plane. we heard explosions in the sky and then the plane suddenly turned around changed its flight path and headed that way. when the video was taken off the side many internet users were keen to know why the b.b.c. said the report did not live up to the editorial values of b.b.c. . some journalists have taken sides to the point that when the ukrainian president said this ukrainian mission now are united we don't have any conflicts inside ukrainian he was not picked up on it even as pictures and video or in a rage in the countries in. the us media is once again taking aim at our train all your c.n.n. discuss this because you are the impact of russia's media machine for all the talk about propaganda which by definition is you know misinformation i don't think russia is winning this is chris cuomo and ortiz piddle of el became
4:10 am
a utah state after a heated intimidation maybe you haven't been following it but the u.s. is actually coming out with a lot of its own intelligence are back connex what happened i'm age seventeen to the acts of raw. militants and perhaps of the involvement of russia in either training equipping or maybe even assisting one one this is what a horrible operation and frankly i don't even have any and so are you talking about what what forensic evidence are you referring to. quit or very or release intelligence information about the trajectory no not twitter i do not think peter this is something to be flip about two hundred ninety people lost their lives let's not i think they want to say people are and has been there anyone is going to come in they're out there we slip in defining a narrative is being pushed in the media that clearly spells cold war to. the russian president is the fight on the covers of major magazines and newspapers is personality is the main focus of media attention this news week article titled
4:11 am
inside the bulletproof bubble of the west's public enemy number one begins by looking into what putin eats for breakfast c.n.n. draws a connection between the russia much as it is your photo editor church and the downing of the malaysian airliner and global outrage grew try to appear pious photographed praying at an orthodox church the russian president continuing his drumbeat blaming ukraine and its western backers he is no one should and no one has the right to use this tragedy to achieve their own selfish political goals these events should not divide united people by fixing its gaze on the russian president the media has excelled at what he does best acting as judge and jury and simplifying a complex situation by focusing on just one person got his shotgun or washington
4:12 am
d.c. . defense analyst ivan eland told my colleague kevin zero in the storm of accusations and allegations is just the way the mainstream media likes to watch. the news media's twenty four seven three sixty five which means it needs a constant stream of. controversy and that's how television is run at least in the united states and i think some other western countries as well and i think you know with these things are often tried in the media before the investigation is done and i think that's been the case here washington says it's cool to intelligence data proves it was a missile launch they say all the or trying force that launched it they keep talking about this but where is the proof nothing substantial has been put forward at all yet while intelligence agencies i mean it could be legitimate that they're hiding the sources and methods and it could be that it's not legitimate and that this is you know well let's just put it out there and see what see what happens the
4:13 am
problem is nobody is neutral in this site you have both sides supporting various sides of the ukraine and so both russia and the united states have a stake in the outcome i think the the upshot of all this is going to be more sanctions. for russia and really some of the blame should lie on the government of ukraine for not closing the airspace you can't expect to fly over a war zone and not be endangered. this week there were reports that the mh seventeen crash was affecting the private life of light emitted putin's daughter who is said to be living with her partner in the netherlands although british tabloid the daily mirror was caught out for not checking its facts on friday's front page the paper published a cover photo it said showed the russian president and his oldest daughter the story claimed she had fled her dutch home but the woman next to putin actually has no connection to him whatsoever she is in fact a lawyer who was working for russia's federal agency for youth affairs at the time
4:14 am
the picture was taken and here's how she reacted to the blunder. it was a nice sunny day the president was walking on my left so i remembered that day was that photo was taken by chance in two thousand and eight someone posted it on the internet without checking the facts it's strange that's now a media organisation with such a big name has decided to use it. or still to come here at all to international reporter parking lot or we hear from the r t contributor in ukraine who was deported from the country this week for quote national security reasons. they are here in the russian capital i'll step aside for a moment coming in with a breakdown of the very latest business it's. the last days sad people essentially leaving in this world when they believe that
4:15 am
you know that i mean to. talk to you. they simply don't realize when propaganda is being poisoned down we need to go beyond that and actually gauge with the ideas in the information that is presented as well and confront that information and i think that's something that as you mentioned before not everything is black and white not everything is in taken a stick and the more that we can be i guess. open minded khana source of information regardless of the source i think we're all going to be.
